 "Since I was a child, I have been passionate about aviation. And I always wondered which planes were passing over my region, and this dream came true when I came across ADS-B technology on Google. I found RadarBox that helped me to see and track flights passing over my city, and I was impressed with how easy it was to use the App site and how complete the platform was.", he said.
